Boomkat Product Review:
**Housed in bespoke, metallic ink-printed sleeve** "Scenic’s 1996 full-length release is now reissued on CD after being out of print since 1999. With Acquatica, Scenic draws from numerous influences to create a 60-plus minute instrumental soundtrack for a voyage through inner space landscapes—a sprawling adventure into another world. Core members Bruce Licher (ex-Savage Republic), James Brenner (ex-Shiva Burlesque), Brock Wirtz and Robert Loveless (ex-Savage Republic and 17 Pygmies) are joined in the studio by both of their contemporary auxiliary live rhythm guitarists, Doug Smith and Brandon Capps (formerly with Independent Project Records band Half String), along with several other guests who add Chamberlin (a mellotron-like instrument) and horns. As on their previous album, periodic breaks in the proceedings function as interludes during which the listener can catch his or her breath and prepare for the remainder of the journey to come."
